Driven To Care Gives to KICS

The Driven to Care program was founded in 2005 thanks to the generosity and vision of Mr. and Mrs. Halle, who wanted to give back in a meaningful way to the people and places that support Discount Tire. Funded by regional tire sales, the program makes grant monies available to the wives of Discount Tire’s Regional Vice Presidents and Assistant Vice Presidents. These dedicated and passionate women, Driven to Care Ambassadors, volunteer their time to research important local issues and give to charitable organizations that make a difference in their local communities. These grants improve the quality of lives in the Discount Tire regions across the country, addressing important needs such as homelessness, hunger, and children’s health and welfare issues.

This holiday season, Driven to Care Ambassadors Alecia Yurkovich, Diane Murray, Simonetti Hollister, Lori Bush, and Amber Thrasher have individually donated gift cards to be distributed through the KICS Clinic.

The Kempe Foundation thanks Driven to Care and Discount Tire for their care and compassion!
